The major headings are: (1) bibliographies; (2) cultural background; (3) general works on modern literature; (4) drama; (5) fiction; (6) poetry; (7) authors, with the subheadings (a) playwrights, (b) novelists and short story writers, (c) poets, (d) others; (8) Mahjarite (Syrian/Arab-American) writings, with three sections concerning three major writers, Gibran, Naimy, and Nihani; (9) North African literature, (10) Palestinian themes and Arab-Jewish relations, and (11) Dissertations.
